It Is Christmas Eve & All Through The House.......

Everyone else is asleep but momma is trying to put together Christmas, namely one "Princess Kitchen." The funny thing about this is that I had talked to my friend Jenny earlier in the day and she said, "Ah, you can knock that thing out in 30 minutes." Well 30 minutes turned into 1 hour and 30 minutes. What ding-a-ling decided that this little kitchen needed 100 pieces to put together? Where is the snap, snap you are done version?

My happy face before I looked at the instructions. Funny thing is, that I should have taken a picture after I looked at the instruction. The expression was sheer panic!! The instructions were so VAGUE!
This is only half the pieces, the other half are behind me in this picture.
(Notice the concentration) I am flying solo building this toy for Taryn since Vaughn has something terribly wrong with him and has been in bed for the past 3 days. Needless to say, I could really use some of his brains and muscle right now but it isn't going to happen. Thank goodness I had a mom that taught me how to put things together. Otherwise I would be in deep crap right about now!
This little "Princess Kitchen" came with a vague instruction booklet and 30 tiny screws that really don't fit into the holes they are suppose to go into. Who came up with this?
Am I done yet?
AH! Finally! The darn thing is done. Why can't toy makers produce toys that are put together friendly? It took me an hour and 25 minutes to put this little project together. Next year, if it has to be put together I am either not buying it or I am paying someone to put it together. Or better yet, I will put it together 5 nights before and hide it in the attic. Then all I have to do is bring it out on Christmas Eve and go to bed.
Santa is finished for the night. And all looks well.
My Santa tree. I have been collecting and receiving Santa ornaments for years now. And I just love my tree. Tyson doesn't like the fact that it doesn't have a star on the top. Sorry son. Santa tops this tree. is the spread the night before Christmas. I wish I could hold this picture in time, because I love it when all the gifts are wrapped, Santa has come and there is a CALM about the whole Christmas HOOPLA! 6 hours from now this will all be a memory....LET THE GAMES BEGIN!
